Question about Washburn N4

Quick question. Why do some N4's locking nut go right through the neck and other N4's dont?
Cheers

Re: Question about Washburn N4

Don't know if this difference only appears between older N4's and newer, so wild guess I'm throwing in: The first x 1000's (in 1992-93 if I'm correct) were made by the Stephens-team themselves and have, besides other differences, different hardware.

Some older N4s had Kahler systems, too, so there are other differences besides the nut.

Re: Question about Washburn N4

The early N4s that used the Kahler system have the nut attached through the neck. The later models all used the Schaller which does not.
